of barack obama's term. i think the american people are asking themselves, why is this happening to us? why after four years is the american economy still weakening and that's what i think they're waiting for mitt romney to explain to them. jenna: so why are the polls then shifting, at least looking a little brighter for the president this week, if at the same time we're getting this data on the economy? >> you know, that's the one thing we're all talking about, jenna, is polls pulling away from romney in places like ohio. i'll tell you based on my anecdotal evidence and some of the e-mails i get from readers who say, i think i'm going to vote for obama, that vote is not strong or locked in. some of those numbers that you guys were putting up just a little bit ago about the economy, and the barack obama and romney being close on handling of the economy and the state of the economy, i think a lot of those voters are sitting there waiting for one of these candidates to make a case to them why they would do a better job with the economy. i think they're waiting for mitt romney to explain to th

. the economy remains a top issue for voters. and many americans are anticipating a victory from the president. pew research reports 51% of voters say they think obama will win in tonight's broadcast. an analyst with the sunlight foundation tells first business that the pressure is on for the romney campaign. "in the polls it looks like romney is falling behind and falling further behind in the battleground states. although nationally it's a very close election, he's been hammered in the battleground states. the debates can be a great equalizer for him, but also that increases the pressure on him, whereas i think we are going to see barack obama playing a lot more defense." that was bill allison of the sunlight foundation. at long last, a wall street firm is being sued for fraud in connection with the housing crash. the suit was filed monday by the new york attorney general. the lawsuit holds jp morgan chase responsible for action by wall street firm bear stearns, which it acquired in 2008. the sold bear stearns prior to the housing collapse from 2006-2007. the attorney general says investors
just want to point out. when you ask about fairness, is the press fair to romney, fair to obama, according to pew the american people are basically yeah, they're fair to both of them. bill: mary katherine, one moment. because when these fox polling numbers came out yesterday. this is what popped on to our desk "time" magazine. mitt romney on the cover. what is it about? mormonism, faith. yet again there it is. what republicans argue is this, name a story that put mitt romney in a positive light? >> well, yeah, you have seen some, i guess you could say "newsweek" did the anti-obama obama cover. i will give them credit for that. about the "time" magazine story you ask the press secretary at the white house who used to work for time. this is perennial problem. the press at mids it. jake tapper said to laura ingraham said i think the press was largely unfair to hillary clinton against obama and john mccain against obama and tipped the election in obama's favor. not me who thinks it, the pretty itself looking at itself maybe we haven't been the fairest. bill: juan you're squinting wh
there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power in perpetuity. the reason i think that is failing is, even those americans, if you break down that 47%, there is a significant chunk of people, receiving social security, who have paid into it their entire life. that is very different from being dependent on welfare. that is a critical safety net our society has counted on that we need to insure remain strong for generations to come. even those who are receiving welfare right now, most americans do not want to stay dependent on government. they want to work for the american dream. they want to work to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as possible dependent on government, to keep voting democratic, is not succeeding. americans want to stand on their own feet. >> that is the craziest thing i ever heard of my life. you are accusing the president of
this on television or read it in the newspaper. ask yourself if what romney and ryan are saying about obama and joe biden is true about medicare, why would the american medicare association endorsed our position. why would the hospital association. why would aarp in dorset? -- endorse it? they have no credibility on this issue. secondly what they do not tell you is equally as important as what they tell you. they do not tell you what they would do about medicare. the first thing they would do, if they took the action they are proposing to take were they to win on january of next year, you would eliminate the new benefit. $800 more for prescription drugs, wellness visits. it would also move medicare trust fund to insolvency in 2016, three years from now. what they really do not want to talk about any more, they do not want to tell you they are not for medicare. they are for vouchercare. this is a fact. they say it will not affect anybody on medicare now. it will not kick in for 10 years. if you are 55 years old, it will kick in. a couple of years ago, the intellectual gravelling of the right came up
to be here today. i extend warm thanks to -- colin powell and javier solana. president obama went on to discuss the waves of change sweeping the arab countries and problems related to the struggle over freedom of expression and religious tolerance. this -- discussing american support for popular uprisings around the world, president obama said we have taken these positions because we believe freedom and self-determination are not unique to one culture. these are not simply american values or western values. they are universal values. even if there will be huge challenges that come with the transition to democracy, i'm convinced altman the government must be for the people and by the people and is more likely to bring about the prosperity and individual opportunity that serves as a basis for peace. the question is, is this the right stance for the united states and europe to take? and are we taking it? what are we actually doing to implement these values? dr. javier solana, i will like to begin by asking you from the point of view of the most senior of european diplomats and states
. this is half an hour. >> i have the honor to welcome to the united nations his excellency, barack obama, president of the united states of america. >> mr. president, mr. secretary general, fellow delegates, ladies and gentleman, i would like to begin today by telling you about an american named chris stevens. chris was born in a town called grass valley, california, the son of a lawyer and a musician. as a young man, chris joined the peace corps, and taught english in morocco. and he came to love and respect the people of north africa and the middle east. he would carry that commitment throughout his life. as a diplomat, he worked from egypt to syria, from saudi arabia to libya. he was known for walking the streets of the cities where he worked -- tasting the local food, meeting as many people as he could, speaking arabic, listening with a broad smile. chris went to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. as america's representative, he helped the libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the
're seeing that reflected not just in president obama, but in the team that supports him. >> yeah. the way i like to put it is that president obama has the appeal of a reluctant warrior, which is what most americans are. if we have to go to war, we will. and he has shown that he will use force when it's necessary, but he's a reluctant warrior. reluctant warrior is still a warrior. other presidents, i think, have been eager warriors -- >> i would add the word "engaged." i think this president understands that in this world you need to be engaged, and he has engaged smartly. >> okay. next i want to introduce michele flournoy, she served as undersecretary of defense for policy from february '09 to february of this year. and prior to her confirmation, she helped lead president obama's transition team at the department of defense. in 2007 she cofounded the organization that doug just referred to, the nonpartisan think tank center for a new american security. republicans in states like virginia, notably, are using the impending sequesters as an issue against their democratic opponents. even though
